    Good for shops, airports etc. Useless for home unless you have a bunch of kids. I wouldn't like to see smudges and fingerprints all over my monitor every time I use PC. Plus most people like to sit away from PC and relax. I would welcome some tech at reasonable price that would make coffee table a touchscreen or even touch input. But then again, that would be more used by families.

    10ms isn't bad, much better than the 100ms on most touch-screen phones.. I can't wait to see them hitting the 1ms response times soon.
